I passed through the reception desk and entered the venue of the evening party. There were many gorgeous dishes lined up on the table. I thought that Sakura would like it, but I only took a glance at them and didn’t touch them. Sakura seemed to be aware of this and didn’t say anything.

I could somehow tell that she was disappointed.

–Lilia. If we keep going straight, we’ll be there.

Following Sakura’s instructions, I walked through the venue and soon found the person I was looking for. The prince was chatting with Chris. When Lilia approached, Chris noticed her first and said,

“Your Highness, I’d better get going.”

“Yeah. I’m sorry.”

Chris bowed to the prince smilingly and walked towards Lilia. She was just about to walk past him without saying any particular greeting.

“Thank you for your hard work.”

Such a small voice. Lilia looked at Chris sideways, and he seemed to be smiling, but only faintly. Then he walked away. When she reached the prince’s side, the prince furrowed his brows in displeasure.

“What are you doing here?”

“I came to say hello. If you don’t mind, I’ll be leaving soon.”

“Then you can leave as soon as possible.”

The prince’s words stopped there. But it was only for a moment, and then he quickly continued.

“You’ve ruined everything I had planned. I’ll have to think again.”

“I’m sorry to hear that, but don’t you have an excellent man by your side?”

He glanced at Glenn, who was not far away, and Glenn quickly looked away. He was stunned for a moment, and then quickly put on a smile.

“Not that one.”

“Looks like it.”

Lilia managed to hold back the urge to sigh and bowed her head.

“I’ll leave you to it.”

“Oh.”

Lilia nodded her head in satisfaction at the prince’s curt words and returned to her stern look. Then, as she was about to leave.

“Liliane?”

She was not expecting to be stopped and turned around suspiciously.

“I’ve prepared souvenirs for everyone. Don’t forget to take them home.”

I wondered if I should bother to say anything, but I bowed my head in thanks and walked towards the exit.

The people handing out souvenirs at the exit were the prince’s servants. They were the ones who had been shivering in the corner of the room when Lilia visited the prince.

I felt a little awkward, but I didn’t turn my head away and walked on.

“Master Aldis. This way, please.”

One of the people who found Lilia held out a paper box that was slightly different in color from the others. If you look closely, it looks a little bigger than the others. When she looked at the one who handed it to her, he had a big smile on his face.

“Let it be a token of our gratitude.”

“I didn’t do anything, did I?”

“No. That’s what I’ll say.”

He smiled meaningfully and went back to his place. Lilia tilted her head, but returned to her room.

I arrived at my room, asked Alisa to make me a cup of tea, and opened the paper box received as a souvenir. Inside was a round cake that was already sliced and divided into six equal pieces. There was also a small folded piece of paper, and when I unfolded it, I saw that it was written in the prince’s handwriting.

S-The prince is broken!

L–That’s terrible, Sakura.

S–Oh, I’m sorry.

L–He was broken from the start. Now he’s finally fixed

S–For all intents and purposes, Lilia’s worse!

I looked over the letter from the prince. It was an apology for the past and a request for future support. He asked me to share the cake with everyone in my room.

S–That’s one too many. Well, he doesn’t know how many we are, so I guess it’s not surprising.

L–No, he probably does. I think he wants you to deliver it to Tina but he couldn’t write that he wanted her to have it, so he gave up in the end, I guess!

S–…….What a roundabout way to go, I can’t help but think he’s going to do it.

After some thought, Lilia instructed Alisa to bring five plates and a small paper box. Alisa immediately prepared what she was told.

I asked her to transfer one of the cake slices to the paper box.

“Cynthia. I’m sorry, but could you please deliver this cake to Tina? Be sure no one sees it.”

As I said this, Cynthia came down from the ceiling. With awe, she took the box with the cake and went back to the ceiling. After seeing her off, Lilia told Alisa to transfer the rest of the cake.

After she finished transferring them, Alisa finished preparing the tea and waited a bit.

S–That’s what it feels like to be a dog in a doghouse! Womp womp!

L–Sakura, this is disgusting.

S–That’s terrible! I feel like Lilia’s been cold to me lately. Is it possible that she doesn’t like me?

L–I like you.

S–Yeah…….Ehehe…….

Lilia let out a chuckle as she saw Sakura’s expression of sloppy laughter.

After a little more waiting, Cynthia returned. She tilted her head curiously, perhaps in response to the fact that the cake was still untouched. Lilia tapped the table with her finger, and Alisa, sensing her meaning, urged Cynthia to sit on the chair. After preparing tea for the three of them, Alisa sat down as well.

“Cynthia, two for the top two first. You’re here, aren’t you?”

“Yes. Thank you.”

Slightly surprised, Cynthia took the plate with the cake and disappeared again to the ceiling. This time, she came right back.

“Let’s have it, shall we?”

After a brief prayer, I picked up my fork.

“Could it be that Miss Lilia…….Have you been waiting for me?”

“It’s just your imagination.”

Lilia said this, looking away slightly. Cynthia rolled her eyes even more, and then smiled.

“Thank you, Lady Lilia.”

“I don’t know what you mean.”

Lilia looked away, but Cynthia was still smiling happily.
